Recommended Use
All Mountain
Versatile boards, ideal for riding all conditions across the entire mountain
Rocker with Camber
Playful and floaty with the added response of camber
Freestyle focused shape with added heelside response and edge hold
Stability, response and control that’s well suited for most types of riding
Never Summer gives this board noticeably deep heel sidecuts making those heelside turns easy to initiate and make riding switch much easier too. That's what makes this qualified as an asymmetrical twin, instead of a standard twin profile. The STS pretensioned fiberglass and core combine to make a mid-flex setup for progressive riders with lots of built in support for big landings and technical carves. You might not see it, but this board comes with advanced damping using rubber under your feet (RDS2 Damping) and more in the tip and tail (Harmonic Damper). Damping is good for rough landings, for choppy conditions and reduces chatter at high speeds. Not only that, but the extended transition area offers a consistent board-feel from tip to tale. All in all, this is a powerful board that dominates in the all mountain category.

Key Features

Ripsaw Rocker Camber Profile - The Ripsaw Profile features amplified camber with the same amount of rocker as Never Summer's popular Rocker Camber profile – using camber for control and pop while still maintaining some of the playfulness and float of rocker. Enhancing the camber even further for the Ripsaw Profile, Never Summer gives you more stability, power and precision for those on the charge.

Vario Power Grip Sidecut - The Vario Power Grip sidecut works perfectly with Never Summer's R.C. Rocker/Camber Technology by adding increased edgehold precisely where it's needed most; from 2 inches outside of each binding and inward towards the center of the board, providing added control and response in any condition.

Damping Rating: Mid - "Mid" rating on the Never Summer damping scale - playful and snappy underfoot but still retains some smoothness at higher speeds.

Damping Ratings = Snappy, Mid, Smooth or Cushy

3 Year Warranty - Covered under manufacturer warranty for 3 years from the time of purchase! Warranty includes structural defects only and DOES NOT cover impact damage, abuse, misuse or normal wear and tear expected from aggressive riding.

Sorry folks, but bashing your board on a rock or rail does not qualify as a "manufacturer's defect" and will not be honored.


NS Superlight Wood Core - Taking their Custom Flight Core even further, Never Summer's Superlight Wood Core blends extremely light wood with durable hardwood for unmatched strength to weight ratio.


Bi-Lite Fiberglass - Bi-Lite fiberglass combines many of the strength characteristics of STS Advanced fiberglass with an ultra light glass fiber matrix. This delivers incredible freestyle and freeride performance without sacrificing durability.

STS Pretensioned Fiberglass - The world's best snowboard fiberglass, period. Never Summer's STS advanced fiberglass is a pre-hardened, pre-tensioned, layered laminate that has added elastomer stringers between the 0-degree and 90-degree glass fibers that run the length of the effective edge. This produces a stronger bond between the individual glass laminates giving their snowboards unmatched strength, edge hold and performance.

Carbon Max Laminate Technology - A lot of energy can be lost from the time your brain signals fire to the time your board actually leaves the ground. Mostly, energy goes into the board and gets stuck there. However, this laminate tech. combines a top and bottom carbon makeup that allows the energy to continue so you get the most response possible while at the same time allowing enough torsional flex to keep you in control.

RDS 2 Rubber Damping System - This lightweight system uses three narrower laminated damping layers that provide the perfect combinations of vibration absorption and stability.

Elastomeric Underfoot Stabilizers - Elastomeric Underfoot Stabilizers are rubber pads directly below the mounting area that provide optimum vibration absorption and increase high speed stability while reducing foot fatigue.

Harmonic Tip & Tail Damper - Harmonic dampers in tip and tail take out a large percentage of residual vibration by quieting the nose and tail. This enhances stability at speed in variable snow conditions and on hard landings without deadening the liveliness and pop of the cambered areas.


Durasurf XT Sintered 5501 Base - Crown Plastics has developed an exclusive, super fast, durable sintered base. Just the right amount of graphite has been added, making the Durasurf 5501 XT base the fastest they've ever made.


Low-Profile Tip & Tail - A low profile in the nose and tail of the snowboard maximizes material contact with the snow for more powerful ollie/nollie pop and adds stability to your landings. LPT also reduces the plowing effect in the nose for better glide to the next feature and superior float when it’s deep.

Sintered P-Tex Sidewalls - Never Summer was the first snowboard company to use and perfect Sintered P-Tex Sidewalls and they've never seen one crack. Unlike conventional ABS sidewalls that have a tendency to crack in colder temperatures, Sintered P-Tex Sidewalls maintain their integrity at any temperature.

TruGrit Topsheet - This topsheet acts as a built in stomp pad. It's scratch resistant, and looks pretty awesome as well.

Extended Transition Area - A flat section on the outside of the feet that helps initiate turning, float, and delivers an overall increased consistency in board-feel.
